Putting Is About Speed

By Chad Jones

The easiest way to take strokes off your game is to focus on improving the speed of your putts. Putting is part art and part science. By developing better feel, you can take 3-5 strokes off your score per round. First, you need to understand that putting is all about speed and direction, but mainly speed. The correct speed on any putt is to be able to consistently roll your ball ten to twelve inches past the hole. I have never seen a ball go in the hole that came up short of the cup.

chad-jones-puttingThe best way that I have found for my students to develop more constant speed in their putting is the following drill. You will need three golf balls and four tees. Select an area on the practice putting green that allows you to putt ten, fifteen, and twenty feet from a hole. Place a tee at those three distances and the last tee twelve inches behind the hole. The goal of this drill is to make or have the ball go past the hole, but not greater than twelve inches. Start at ten feet and work your way to fifteen and then twenty feet. The rule is all three balls must go in the cup or pass the cup and stay within the twelve inches of the cup to pass to the next distance.

Once you master this drill you will find your scores improve and your handicap will be lower in the future.
